Texas, Adios (Texas, Addio in Italy; Goodbye Texas in USA; Django, der Rächer or Django 2 in West Germany) is a 1967 film directed by Ferdinando Baldi and starring Franco Nero. It is often referenced in connection with Django, also starring Nero, and although was referred to as "Django 2" in some countries, it is not considered a sequel. The film is mostly remembered as a lesser known Spaghetti Western.

Plot[edit]

Although technically a Spaghetti Western, the plot of Texas, Adios plays more like a traditional American western film. Franco Nero plays two-fisted, taciturn Texas sheriff, Burt Sullivan, a man committed to duty and justice but possessed by a desire for revenge. Sullivan, along with his younger brother, crosses the border to bring wealthy and sadistic Mexican crime boss Cisco Delgado (José Suárez) to justice for the murder of their father. Eventually joining forces with a group of Mexican revolutionaries, Sullivan and his brother soon find themselves at the center of a bloodbath.

Characters[edit]

Burt Sullivan: is a Sheriff in his town, called White Rock. He leaves one day, to go to Mexico to find the man responsible for the death of his father. Burt joins forces with the local townspeople to stop and bring Cisco back to his punishment in Texas.


Jim Sullivan: is Burt's younger brother. He follows Burt, and later joins up with him on their way to Mexico.

Cisco Delgado: is the man, who many years ago, killed Burt's father and raped his mother. Jim, thus, is Cisco's son, unbeknownst to Jim, but not to Burt. Cisco has become the local landowner in Mexoco, where everybody lives in fear of him.

Production[edit]

Texas, Adios, like many Spaghetti Westerns, was shot in the Spanish province Almería. Franco Nero, in his comments on the Anchor Bay DVD mentions that the Texas, Adios shoot took place not far from where Sergio Leone was filming The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly at the same time. Nero and Clint Eastwood spent time between shots socializing.
